Self Study Program 990253 – The 2016 Audi TT Roadster

VAG SSP 990253. The third generation TT Roadster marks the continuation of a great tradition. The designers at Audi have re-interpreted the styling of this classic vehicle and complemented it with innovative new components.

Like the 2016 TT Coupe, the Roadster will feature a 2.0L TFSI engine and DSG transmission as well as quattro.

The flat and taut top of the TT Roadster provides a clear contrast with the body and is defined by the short side window design that is typical of the Roadster. The TT is equipped with an electrically operated fabric top.

The body shell of the new TT Roadster represents a new evolution of the Audi Space Frame (ASF) based on the modular transverse matrix (MQB). Compared with the Coupe, the body of the Roadster has been modified in key areas. Ultra-high strength components made from hot-stamped steel reinforce the front end and the occupant cell floor. Aluminium is used in the cell as well as in all outer skin parts and attachments in the form of three typical semi-finished products – die-cast nodal elements, extruded profiles and sheet metal.

The new TT Roadster combines the dynamic ride of a sports car with the driving experience of an open top two-seater. This was accomplished in part by struts in the underbody and body that enhance torsional rigidity and thus ride comfort.

The innovative new Audi virtual cockpit will also be standard on the TT Roadster. This new display and control concept received the Car Connectivity Award and the Interior Innovation of the Year at the 2014 Automotive Interiors Expo Awards.
